Democrats Criticize Iraq Strategy

For weeks, the Democrats have criticized Pres. Bush for, in their view, not having a strategy to win in Iraq. Last week, Bush outlined his Iraq strategy in a speech at the Naval Academy. The White House also posted the strategy document on its website. (Hat tip to Westhawk for the link)

Almost immediately, Democrats attacked the President and his strategy. Several Democrats, including House Monority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Cal.), announced that Bush's strategy contained nothing new.

This particular criticism raises a question. If it is true that Bush's Iraq strategy contains nothing new, how can it be true that Bush did not have a strategy before when Democrats said he did not have a strategy? On the other hand, if it is true that Bush did not have a strategy before his speech, how can it be true that his strategy speech contains nothing new? This conundrum illustrates the political strategy of the Democrats, relentlessly negative criticism without regard for consistency or the truth.
